Karen Nielsen, MSOM, Lic.Ac.


I have been practicing the ancient healing arts of acupuncture and herbal medicine since graduating from the Minnesota College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in 2000 with a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine.


My most recent training has been with Dr Richard Tan learning his ‘Acupuncture 1-2-3’ and Balance Method.  Every day I am astounded by the power of these treatments for relieving pain and restoring health.  (And it is just plain FUN to see the expression on a person’s face when I ask them to tell me where their pain is after just a few needles have been inserted, because in most cases the pain they have been experiencing is gone!)


I have been on a journey towards health and well being since my 30’s and have benefited from chiropractic care, kinesiology, acupuncture, naturopathy, homeopathy, massage and other forms of body work, as well as western medicine.  I have also studied indigenous wisdom ways of wellness which are truly holistic in nature, addressing the body-mind-spirit as a whole.
